Ultralight Outside Gear was additionally alongside within the unique One Cease Collection (right here’s their listing from 5 years in the past) so I’m completely happy that they’re alongside once more this yr!

They’ve a big selection of climbing and tenting gear (all ultralight!) and likewise carry attire from nice manufacturers like Rab, Patagonia, Montane, Inov-Eight and Haglöfs. When I’ve ordered from them the turn-around was at all times fast, and I nonetheless personal and use the Tibetian Titanium 1100 Pot I purchased from them 10 years in the past! However with out a lot additional ado, lets see what sort of listing they despatched us:

My ideas on the listing:
That is an amazingly gentle and likewise inexpensive listing – the lightest and most cost-effective to date!
The Huge three are 1.692 g collectively, and whereas the Kumo may be a bit small for every week lengthy journey, the gear on this listing packs actually compact so it needs to be potential to hold gear and meals for every week in it. The Sea to Summit sleeping bag may be very gentle, as is the Wisp which shall be pitched with one of many trekking poles.
I’m stunned to see the Soto Windmaster once more – it appears to be a very good range. The kitchen gear weighs a scant 253 g for range, pot, cutlery, cup and water filter – should you throw in a small gasoline cartridge you continue to can keep below 500 g!
A pleasant number of clothes, and the Mountain Gear Fleece Jacket particularly caught my eye as it’s notably gentle. I in all probability would swap the footwear for a non-GoreTex shoe (just like the Trailroc) however I get that within the UK it’s moist and that’s why they’re in there 😊
Lastly a store which picks the Bindi! This ultralight headlamp packs plenty of energy in a tiny bundle and I count on to see it changing the eLite within the not-too-distant future. Gram Counter Gear is Ultralight Outside Gear’s home model, and these carbon poles are severely inexpensive.
A stable listing that basically is ultralight with a Baseweight of two.359 g (the clothes and footwear weigh in at 1.652 g). Even should you’d wish to add in a extra voluminous backpack, a bigger shelter or a hotter quilt you simply will be capable to keep below three kg on your baseweight!
Remember the fact that these lists are ideas! You don’t want to purchase every little thing in a single go if you’re already climbing & backpacking, and we merely wish to present you you can buy a whole Ultralight Backpacking Setup from one retailer.
